 Forget this above, I'm wrong, even I pass there proper user name and
 password, then it fails, so it seems to me (a guess), that GAL requires
 secure authentication.

   This must be settable. We did not have secure-password enabled a year
ago, so I have 'plaintext' checked. I just tried shifting it to secure,
and hey, that works now, which sounds good - but I cannot see my OWN
calendar - repeated password attempts.
  So I have gone back to plaintext. But maybe I need to talk to our
exchange people about calendar/mail/gal authentication and find out what
they think is enabled!

   The create_contact() e-book function is rather loosely defined:

   overwritten with the new one?
  If there is an existing contact with the same UID, create_contact fails.
  Use modify_contact().
 OK - How about the case where there is an existing contact that looks
 similar to the one that we attempts to create?

If it looks similar but is in all respects a different contact
(different UID, primarily), then you get two contacts.

EDS isn't the place for this contact looks the same logic, the UI is.
